Our Story

Gorilla Spirits Co.

Gorilla Spirits Co. was founded in 2015 by Andy Daniels, with the vision to create an exceptional portfolio of spirits with an ethical conscience.

Based in the heart of Hampshire, Gorilla Spirits Co.’s distillery in Upton Grey is where we make our small-batch, award-winning spirits – including Silverback Mountain Strength Gin, Silverback Old Tom Gin, Blackback Mountain Strength Vodka and Maraba Coffee Liqueur – all while donating £1 from every bottle to The Gorilla Organization.

We’re proud of our products and we’re proud of the contribution we make to saving the endangered gorilla population.

We’re a family-style team, all focused on the mission of distilling, bottling, finishing, distributing and marketing Gorilla Spirits Co.
